Eddie is a PhD candidate in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas Christian University and a Master’s degree in Energy and Mineral Engineering from Penn State University.

His unique background has fostered an interest in statistical learning approaches for knowledge discovery in large datasets. On this basis, his current research efforts are focused on the application of Big Data analytics towards characterizing fractures and complex subsurface features in unconventional shale reservoirs, by harnessing information from well production and seismic data.

In his extracurricular life, Eddie is an avid music enthusiast, with hobbies in digital music production and acoustic guitar performance.
